An economist from the Federal Reserve Bank will speak in Bellaire Thursday to explain how the current economy affects energy conditions on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Bill Gilmer, an economic researcher and author, will speak on the current economic crisis at the Oct. 22 luncheon of the Bellaire/Southwest Houston Rotary Club. The event starts at noon at the BraeBurn Country Club, 8100 Bissonnet Street. The talk is open to the public for $15 per person.

Gilmer is vice president in charge of the El Paso Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. He also works with the Houston Branch of the Fed to oversee economic research, public affairs, information technology and payment system risk.

The researcher focuses his work on studying economic and energy conditions on the Texas Gulf Coast, in the state’s border cities, and in West Texas and New Mexico. He has an upcoming publication, “Economics of the Texas Triangle and City Pairs on the Texas-Mexico Border.” Gilmer’s articles have appeared in the International Business and Economics Research Journal, Public Finance Quarterly, Energy Economics, and other journals.
